Gabriel Mark Hasselbach has been in demand on the Vancouver scene for many years and has fine-tuned the art of entertaining with a band, and as a solo act for restaurant, corporate and public audiences in intimate venues, as well as larger lounges, ie: The Hard Rock Casino, which was a solo gig.
He has a compelling, full sound when performing as a solo act on trumpet, flute, flugelhorn, and vocals, using backing tracks from his many award-winning albums (JUNO, Album of the Year, Instrumentalist of the Year, etc), and classic favourites for the well-heeled crowd.
Gabriel will design a custom performance playlist for your restaurant/lounge or your gala event. He has created a wide demographic solo show that has served him well with regular solo gigs at Hard Rock Casino Lounge (3 yrs), Bin 101 (1 yr), Ten Ten Tapas (4 yrs), Pinnacle Hotel Lounge (3 yrs), Sylvia Hotel (3 yrs occasional) Monk McQueens (5 yrs at 6 nights a week), Dockside Granville Island (3 yrs), Hotel Vancouver (1 yr 6 nights a week), REACH Gala at Tsawwassen Springs and Tsawwassen Mills (4 yrs), etc.
He is very engaging with any audience and will alternate between a foreground performance and a background ambience that suits your venue at any given time throughout the night (sometimes the crowd wants to talk and sometimes they want to be entertained).
